I recently moved into this charming (very tiny) two-bedroom apartment in a beautiful pre-war building. This being the largest place I've lived in on my own, I was excited by the opportunity to apply all of my favorite decorating styles in one space.

From dark, moody walls to cheeky wallpaper, the space reflects my belief that homes can be fun yet sophisticated at the same time. When I began planning out the spaces, I was inspired by the pokey, tight rooms of British homes & boutique hotels I've seen in the past.

Leaving no surface untouched, they're not afraid to pack a lot of bold style into the narrowest of spaces! My proudest DIY in the apartment is my Hygge & West wallpapered hallway; it was such a narrow, dead space before, but now I just have a huge a grin whenever I walk through it.

What I love most about my home is how, in the end, the tight, awkward layout inspired me rather than held me back. It challenged me to really think about how I could make each space work aesthetically and turn the flaws into part of my apartment’s charm. I'm so happy with how it all turned out and can't wait enjoy it for years to come!
